Wallace Silversmiths 1977 Silver Sleigh Bell Christmas Ornament, Seventh in a Limited Edition of the annual series of highly collectible silverplate bell ball ornaments. There is a raised design festive band of Doves and Mistletoe leaves and berries going all around the center of the ornament. On this 7th year of the Wallace silverplated annual Christmas bell series, the 1977 date is on a banner on one side in the raised design that encircles the bell. The bell is marked at the bottom “Wallace, 1977” and has the Wallace trademark symbol.
This highly collectible bell ornament measures about 8 1/4” in circumference all the way around the middle. There is a metal ring going through a post on top for hanging the bell decoration. It measures about 2 1/2” tall including the post on top (not including the ring). The bell makes a lovely ringing sound.
It is in excellent vintage condition, with very minor use scratches that you would expect in an item that was lovingly used over the years. The buyer may want to polish the decoration a little more.
I do Not have the original box or the paper tag card for this silver plate bell ornament.
This popular Wallace Silversmiths collectible bell ball shaped ornament came from a private collection, and I am offering many more hard-to-find bells from this annual Christmas bell series for sale as separate items (some with original box and card certificate), so please check my store for more vintage Wallace bell ornaments.
